Pattern Description: Misses knit halter dress in two lengths has elasticized back & empire waistline seam.

Pattern Sizing: 4-16

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, sort of.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It is a problem solver for a quick fix dress and can use practically any type of knit to make.

Fabric Used: Knit

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: My daughter is only 5" tall and her body is so compact and curvy. I started out with the dress according to the pattern, but when she tried it on, I knew I had more work to do. First I had to adjust the bust (took in 1/2" on all seams) to to fit her bust and raised the center seam (1/2") to make the V fit her chest. I then reinforce the elastic in the back at the side seams and stitched across the top of the elastic to give her more security.

The skirt part was way too big for her and didn't hang right. So, according to her measurements, I reshaped the skirt to fit her body. I cut 1" on both sides and 1/2" at the back seam. Then I cut in total 3" of both sides and 2" in the back. There was about 2 try ons and then success.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes. Yes.

Conclusion: Overall this is a nice pattern. The reason I say is is because my daughter is really petite and she is very curvy. I almost dread figuring patterns to fit her and therefore do not sew for her very often, but when I do, I like to take my time. However, the transition that I went through to fit her doesn't sway my decision about this dress on an average sized woman. I think I might try this one for myself.
